Completing replacement of enclosures and reconnection of all services within a day to minimise disruption whilst keeping critical connections active

Waste to Energy

If Western Australia is known for one thing in summer it’s the constant heat, and if there is one thing that will damage sensitive network equipment in a hurry, again the answer is heat.

 Lightspeed Communications & Electrical along with City of Perth have this year embarked on the replacement of some of the cities existing outdoor communications equipment cabinets with self-contained, air-conditioned communications cabinets to help keep temperatures down.

 The original equipment cabinets were installed to house fibre optic and networking equipment and have grown to be central hubs for services across the city. With the cities growth and changes over recent years, the existing cabinets have reached a point where they were not able to keep up with the cooling requirements.

Lightspeed worked with our supplier partners to find a solution that maintained the IP ratings, security and cooling needs. The new equipment cabinets are designed in Australia and supplied by a West Australian business to suit the harsh Perth conditions.

 Lightspeed’s team of technicians and electricians developed a plan to minimise the required downtime and keep critical services online whilst the old cabinets were literally taken apart around them, and then install and commission the new units in their place. The team were able to complete all the onsite works at each cabinet in under a day and make sure that critical systems were back online.


This project was another great example of the Lightspeed way:

Collaboration from initial planning to project completion, looking for solutions outside the normal, and attention to detail at every stage.
